Remember that post I wrote a few weeks ago about how I was feeling stuck and how I was ready for a change??
Well, big changes have occurred since then!
The photo above was taken on my trip to France in May. I literally wished for freedom as that photo was taken.
Two weeks after I wrote that post and one month after I made that wish, I was laid off from my part-time bookkeeping job, where I had been employed for the past seven years. Leaving that job behind was inevitable, and honestly, I needed that push — because leaving wasn’t something I could do myself.
I didn’t want to give up the income because it still allowed me the freedom to travel whenever I wanted. But deep down, bookkeeping wasn’t what I wanted to be doing — not even part-time.
It was a bit of a shock at first, but I quickly adapted. Instead of feeling sorry for myself, I knew it was a necessary step in my life — a new chapter for me to write.
When I feel challenged, I thrive. When things feel too easy, I get lazy — which is what started happening in my life and why I craved a change.
I have always believed that everything happens for a reason. Sometimes you need to eliminate a fallback, in order to do your best work.
I’m excited to see what the future holds.
I’m not ready to share all of the details about what comes next for me, but I will keep everyone posted as I transition into new ways of keeping this dream alive.
